I qualified as a teacher 2 years ago whilst my son was young, thinking this was a good move for when he was older and a career I love. Problem - I have been looking for a job ever since and not stepped foot into a classroom as a teacher since. I have registered with supply, I have applied for over 100 jobs, part time, full time, job share as a classroom helper - anything and everything including dinner lady. I now have the problem, not having been in a classroom for 2 years I am being overlooked and told I am not up to date, despite going into schools volunteering and being a private tutor. When I apply for non teaching posts such as a receptionist, cleaner and fruit packer, I am told I am overqualified and should be looking for teaching as this is what I am qualified in, but there are no jobs! I am going around in circles. What should I do to get a job in any sector?
I am a young and single mum in private housing. My child has started nursery on a half day basis, Monday to Friday - I'm unable to get childcare any other time. I really want to get back into work, with a steady and reliable income. I have no work experience.
I've been looking for a job to do from home and have my CV ready. I've applied for loads of jobs but there only seem to be scams out there.
I've been out of work since October 2009, but have been searching for a job for a while now with no luck. I have just discovered I'm pregnant and now I'm unsure of what to do. I haven't been claiming benefits and my husband and I are now struggling financially, but who will employ a pregnant woman? Please can you advise me what I can do?
I was made redundant from a project manager's role. I have no formal project managing qualifications just what I have learnt on the job this past 7 years. I was project manager over a £12million project. However, I have now struggled for over a year to get a similar role or more junior role due to not having the formal certificates etc. How can I get around this without having to pay thousands to retrain as I am a single parent of 2 children with childcare costs of over £1,200 a month to pay while I am working or re-training.
